How accurate is my GPS?

GPS, or Global Positioning System, accuracy is directly related to the quality of the GPS signal being picked up. One major factor is the quality of the GPS receiver in your phone. As a rule of thumb, the newer and more advanced your phone is, the better the GPS signal is likely to be. You can consult your device’s documentation to find out more about your GPS. Another major factor is making sure your phone has clear line of sight of GPS satellites in the sky. When we consider the GPS data collected about your trips, we also take into account the quality of the GPS signal received and only take into account data which we can be confident is sufficiently accurate. Sometimes you might get trip feedback saying your GPS signal wasn’t strong. On average, we’d expect to achieve successful monitoring in 80% of trips.
